BUILDING UPGRADES AND FENCING FOR ROODEPOORT SCHOOLS, THANKS TO CASHBUILD

Cashbuild Art at Heart Event Ontdekker 2019 Seven schools in Roodepoort, Gauteng, were the lucky winners of the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition and their prize now allows them to improve school facilities. The schools each won a Cashbuild building material voucher to the value of R15 000, which was handed out at the opening ceremony of the refurbished Ontdekkers store on the 9th of May 2019.

Harry Gwala Primary School and Onkgopotse Tiro Primary School were just two of the seven schools that received a Cashbuild building material voucher.

Harry Gwala Primary School's principal, Mr Dube, will be using the voucher to upgrade and improve the toilet facilities. "This voucher will be a great help for us, because it enables us to not only upgrade our current toilets, but also to start building another structure that will house more toilets. We do not only need better toilets, but also more facilities." He adds that the balance of the voucher will be used to purchase paint for the classrooms as well.

Mr Kubheka, the principal of Onkgopotse Tiro Primary School said fresh paint and a fence are their main concerns: "We are so happy and grateful as we can now buy paint for our classrooms as well as upgrade our toilet facilities. We also want to install a fence around the school grounds to improve the safety of our learners and the entire school."

At the opening ceremony of the refurbished Cashbuild Ontdekkers store on the 9th of May 2019, when the building material vouchers totaling R105 000 were handed out to the seven winning schools, the children entertained everyone with singing, cultural dancing and theatrical performances.

The Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition entails learners from each school to submit their best artwork to Cashbuild. This artwork is displayed at the ceremony, and remains on display in the Cashbuild store for the next six years.

Artwork was judged and three winners from each school were named. Winners received Cashbuild Art-at-Heart gold, silver and bronze certificates for first, second and third place respectively. The Manager's Choice was awarded to a learner from Khaselihle Primary School who was the overall winner of the artwork competition. This award was announced on the day and the winning learner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy. The winner was also given the honour of officially opening the refurbished store.
